Failed in 6 months

paintsit, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought this in May and now it is dead in November. I bought it because it was identical to my factory original. Worked fine until the last few days when i noticed a slight noise when it was running. Two hard drive failures in six months is hard to take.

Seagate 750GB SATA Hard Drive

Dr Who "Dr Who", Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: This hard drive came with my new computer and it is now toast after 3.5 years. I started getting the click of death about a month ago. I backed up my data and bought a Western Digital Blue 1 TB drive to replace it. It did not last too long after the 3 year warranty.

Great warranty

Robert, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Great warranty service, which I have used twice now. I bought two of these drives and both failed once. I sent in a warranty claim and they replaced both of them. I would not recommend them as 2 out of 2 have failed. If you do use it, be sure to back up your data.

Bad drive.

AWBoater, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought two of these drives for using in a RAID 1 array in a Synology DS210j Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. After 6 weeks of operation, one of the drives failed. When the drive went bad, I contacted Synology and told them the errors the NAS was sending me.

Seagate - Poor Quality Control

njmonte "njmonte", Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased three of these drives. I was hesitant after the problems with version 11 but after reading a review on how fast there drives were and reading that the version 12 drives were fixed I went ahead. I set up two drives in a RAID 1 and used the third drive as my boot drive.

Good Product but Awful Packaging

grimbaldus, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a good disk drive at a fair price, but the packaging is woeful. It came wrapped in 1 layer of bubble wrap and a carboard cover of the same type that Amazon use to send out books.
